"MOST Iraqis believe life is better for them now than it was under Saddam Hussein, according to a British opinion poll published today.
The survey of more than 5,000 Iraqis found the majority optimistic despite their suffering in sectarian violence since the American-led invasion four years ago this week."
Without a hint of sarcasm, The Times article, published on the 18th of March, concludes with a quote from Margarett Becket, “There is no widespread violence in the four southern provinces and the fact that the picture is more complex than the stereotype usually portrayed is reflected in today’s poll,” .
I guess that means we can all relax and go home, it's not as bad as we thought.
PS. Does anybody know what an accurate translaton of Ikhtalat al Habel bil Nabel would be? The winner gets a bowl of Hummus.
